Editorial Reviews


"Fronda's fresh and modern approach to the [Second Punic] war's diplomatic arena, which both incorporates material and numismatic evidence alongside written sources and situates events in their historical context, offers much more than its subtitle suggests. Although not structured as a narrative, the book develops a history of southern Italy in a neglected period, c. 350-200 BCE, and contributes much of interest to scholars of Roman history more generally." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"The book makes a significant contribution to the crucial issues of why Hannibal lost, and what his defeat meant for both Rome and Italy."
-- Dexter Hoyos, New England Classical Journal

Book Description

The great Carthaginian general, Hannibal, invaded Italy during the Second Punic War (218-201 BC) with the hope of raising widespread rebellions among Rome's subordinate allies in the south. He was partly successful, but did not win over enough Italian cities to defeat Rome. This book explains why.
